The north Kilkenny club won the county intermediate title in 2017, and pushed on to reach the national decider in Croke Park which they eventually lost to Kanturk of Cork. However, their stay in the Nore-side top tier was a brief one, as they suffered relegation from the senior grand in 2019, after a play-off loss to Bennettsbridge.
Downey will be eager to hit the ground running, as St Pat's look to rebound once again in 2020.
